PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, the owner and producer of PACK EXPO Las Vegas (Sept. 23-25, 2013; Las Vegas Convention Center) announces that it is expanding the show floor yet again to meet supplier demand.
“With just two months before show time, PACK EXPO is still growing,” says PMMI president & CEO Charles D. Yuska. “After expanding the show floor to accommodate supplier demand, we plan to add yet more exhibit space.”
More than 1,600 processing and packaging solutions providers are on board to occupy over 700,000 net square feet, making the 2013 edition the largest PACK EXPO Las Vegas since the event first opened in 1995.
“Our exhibitor numbers are already up 15%, and the floor itself has expanded by 12% compared to the 2011 Las Vegas show,” says Yuska.
In fact, PMMI has added a third Innovation Stage to expand PACK EXPO’s on-floor educational programming, delivering even more insights to attendees looking to learn about ways to enhance sustainability, efficiency, automation and food safety measures.
But it’s about more than booth space. PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013 is also on track to play host to its largest audience of attendees. Attendance is expected to well exceed 26,000 manufacturing professionals from the baking and snack, beverage, confectionery, pharmaceutical and other industries - a 10% increase over 2011 numbers.
